Exploring Arch of Constantine
Right next to the Colosseum stands the Arch of Constantine, erected in the early fourth century to celebrate the victory of Constantine over Emperor Maxentius. The arch, decorated with statues and reliefs, has survived the times relatively unscathed. The large arch with three archways is almost 26 meters (85ft) wide and 21 meters (69ft) high. During construction, many parts from older structures were reused, which was common practice at the time. The statues at the top were taken from the Forum of Trajan. They depict Dacian captured soldiers, defeated by the Trajan army.
